NYC subway stabbings have spiked by 35 percent. A Trader Joes’ worker was slashed in face for standing up to rude passenger. That attack comes just days after a woman was slashed in the forehead by another woman with a boxcutter on a 5 train at 59th Street and Lexington Ave.

Michelle Go’s  a Deloitte advertising executive was pushed in front of a train in a Times Square subway station and was killed. A 22-year-old unnamed man, was performing on the train when he was stabbed twice in the leg and once in the arm. There have been so many people horrifically hurt

Mayor Eric Adams stated “Let’s be clear on this, [the homeless] are not dangerous.” My question to Adams is will this still be your party line when someone you love is randomly killed by a homeless person?

Adams and Gov. Kathy Hochul are cracking down on crime with the new Subway Safety Plan initiative. The pam includes 1,000 additional officers as well as health care workers to address the rampant crime, victimization and homelessness in the subways. They will also deliver 600 new psychiatric beds plus another 500 beds to shelters to try and provide help for those currently living in the subways, many of whom suffer from severe mental illness. $9 million a year will also be allocated  to recruit psychiatrist and nurses to work beside the officers.

The plan also evokes an expansion of Kendra’s Law, a 1999 statue that allows judges to force outpatient treatment for mentally ill people.

Maybe Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s should rethink his  ‘woke’ reforms, that allows criminals a free pass and puts them out in the streets to terrorize.

My View: The Only Thing Missing Was A Latte ( with extra foam) Marcy & Zina Party at 54 Below



The only thing missing at last night’s party for Marcy and Zina was a Latte choice in the beverage section on the menu at 54 Below (with extra foam).  The show, titled  Make Your Own Party: The Songs of Goldrich and Heisler was conceived by Scott Coulter and performed by a cast of five. It celebrated over three decades of quirky, heartfelt and utterly contemporary romantic comedy songs written by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich.

From “Taylor the Latte Boy” to under appreciated altos we were introduced to the cast of characters that inspired these inseparable, irreverent friends to write over three hundred and counting musical love letters to the city, the theatre, and the people who make them sing.  The evening was filled with the heart felt stories that these two award winning women have created and was performed by a first rate cast of Broadway super singers.  The lyrics, the music, the luscious harmonies…it was the best party of music I’ve ever been invited to.

The Performers: Jill Abramowitz, Cole Burden, Alex Getlin, Joe Kinosian, Kelli Rabke, and Austin Rivers.

Joe Kinosian,piano, Matt Scharfglass, bass

Marcy & Zina have been performing and writing together since 1992.  Their critically acclaimed romantic comedy songs have been featured in venues across the world, recorded by artists across many genres, and appear in numerous folios and collected works.  Their Off-Broadway musical Dear Edwina earned them a Drama Desk nomination, and other works have been produced by regional powerhouses such as Paper Mill playhouse, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Goodspeed, and the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts.  Their shows include Ever After, JUnie B Jones, and The Great American Musical, based on the bestselling book by auther/director Julie Andrews.

What is Going On Over at Manhattan Plaza?



The residents of the 484 building at Manhattan Plaza are having to deal with a tenant who set his apartment on fire in January. The man then barricaded the door to keep the Fire Department out. Now management has allowed the man to move back in to his unit. Management not only had to replace his front door, but also the frame since the firefighters had been forced to knock it down with axes and battering rams.

As a precaution they removed his gas stove (which wasn’t where he had set his fire), he did that in the living room.

The first night he was back, the building stationed a security guard on his floor, but that was only for one night.

The management is refusing to communicate with tenants on that floor and the adjoining ones.

Before the tenant graduated to arson, he was known to threaten, harass and stalk his neighbors. It was the second time he had barricaded his door to keep first responders out.

Could this be another homicidal / suicidal episode waiting to happen?

Thanks to the New York Court system it can take two years to evict a tenant, even an arsonist.

Illegal Migrants Now Are Given The Old McDonald Building On 42nd Street



Mayor Eric Adams is set to open another illegal migrant shelter right in the heart of Times Square. The vacant Candler Tower office building, at 209-213 West 42nd Street is about to house more illegal migrants.

This is smack dabb in the pulse of Times Square.

The building, once home to the 24-hour McDonald’s restaurant was long billed as the busiest and most profitable of its kind in the US. Thanks to COVID-19 the building was lockdown in June 2020 and the building’s owner, UK-based investment company EPIC, reportedly signed over the deed in March 2022 to avoid foreclosure.

This property is 227,685 square feet and has 24 floors, with a market value of $110,464,000.

There are now 103 emergency shelters being used to house migrants and guess who is footing the bill?

Why are we not housing our Vets, our homeless or our senior citizens? I guess if you are illegal you get a free pass!
